1762 Ex Parte Avtomonov et al 12405498 - (D) BEST 112(2)/103 MILES & STOCKBRIDGE, PC JONES JR., ROBERT STOCKTON

1766 Ex Parte Yamamoto et al 10567107 - (D) McKELVEY 103 Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP (WM) FANG, SHANE

Applicant's attack on Blasius is reminiscent of the unsuccessful attack made by the applicant in In re Keller, 642 F.2d 413, 426 (CCPA 1981) (one cannot show nonobviousness by attacking individual references where a combination of references is used to support rejection).  Blasius describes an improvement chain extender said to be useful in a variety of polymers, one of which is polyesters. There was no need for Blasius to describe in detail any prior art esters. Carnegie Steel Co. v. Cambria Iron Co., 185 U.S. 403, 437 (1902) (an inventor may assume that what was already known in the art was known to those skilled in the art); Webster Loom Co. v. Higgins, 105 U.S. 580, 586 (1881) (in describing its invention, an applicant may begin at the point where his invention begins, and describe what he has made that is new, and what it replaces of the old. That which is common and well known is as if it were written out in the [specification] patent and delineated in the drawings.)

Keller, In re, 642 F.2d 413, 208 USPQ 871 (CCPA 1981) 707.07(f) 2145
